COOKSVILLE--Sue Ebbert is hoping to breathe new life into a small, quaint building known for its historic appeal.

Ebbert purchased the General Store in the crossroads town of Cooksville, northeast of Evansville, during the summer. The store, built in 1847, had been closed for about a year and half before Ebbert decided to take over ownership.

“They claim it's the longest continuously running store in Wisconsin,” Ebbert said. “There's a lot of history in town. You have the church up on the corner. There's a brick home that used to be a doctor's house and the old blacksmith shop next door.”

During the past year members of the Historic Cooksville Trust and Cooksville Community Center have helped find a new owner for the general store.
